The authorities at the Western Wall,so it seems have no problem with the "Women of . . . " except they are not acting in step with Halacha. In East and Central Europe the Neologs and the "Orthodox" managed nicely, those that accpted Halacha agreed to disagree and gave each other the space they needed to operate. In the States, however, as this paper described aptly, Isaac Mayer Wise decided that Halachic norms were "no longer valid", disallowing any space in ideolgogical terms for Orhodoxy. It woujld seem that some of the Reformists in Israel are taking the lead of North American Jewish Reform Judaism, at least historically, and try to discredit Halachic norms, while the rabbi at the Western Wall is treating the issue as it was handled in Eastern and Central Europe tolerating the non-Halachic Jews by providing a "space" for egalitarian worshop alongside Halachic worship. Both approaches exist in Judaism today, and it's quite rational that Halacha's needs are for two areas--one for men, the other for women, and egalitarian services don't require the separation, so . . . Were the Women of the . . . logical, they would accept the arrangement, but alas, they cannot accept any kind of Judaism but the one they promote, while the Halachic Jews, have come to the position, albeit regretably, that there must be a place for Jews that don't observe Judasim according to Halacha.
